with deep depression and franklin roosevelt and his very death campaign against a very administration of herbert hoover, so those particular incidents and people are not going to be repeated, but it certainly suggests a number of political refrain that we will see through this year as well and how to the candidates and how does the public respond when issues shift from cultural issues which had dominated the previous three elections to economic issues that dominated in 1932 and it also suggests fax politicians will always do well never to underestimate their opposition. the other quote that informed my research i heard as i was driving to work one day it was just rescheduling at enron who said the trouble with history is that it tells you what happened but not what might have happened. and i thought that is a good model for studying and election because we start with the knowledge of who won the election so there isn't a lot of room for a suspense and telling the story but the trouble with this is that your assumption is because you know at the end that the end was inevitable, that it
such a crisis and these were jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt with a 37 downturn and george bush to eight failed due to their inability to leave with jefferson, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and bush. they failed to to franklin roosevelt and richard nixon. four of them did not effectively communicate this agenda or initiative were jefferson, monroe, grant and cleveland. obviously the dominant source of failure for the second term prudent has been their inability to successfully work with congress, the second term presidents have faced troubled or second terms do directly to the fight between the congress and the white house. having a congressional majority of their own party is no assurance of release. those presidents that serve in the congress having the majority of the opposing party during the second term included willson, eisenhower, nixon, ronald reagan and clinton. the competitive battle to the president and congress dates to the site george washington had in the congress over the treaty. he had won approval only after standing considerable efforts looking directly w
. franklin roosevelt won his second term landslide because of his huge popularity. however, in many more presidential elections, the candidates are in a pitted battle to present themselves as the one best capable of serving the country, with the winner walking off with a modest majority. there is customary wisdom, a campaign between the incumbent president and his opponent will be either a referendum on the first term of the president or a judgment of which candidate will be the better leader. is there really a difference between these two considerations? does it not boil down to judging the leadership skill of the incumbent based on his effectiveness during his first term versus the unknown leadership skills of the challenger? it is easy to point to the national security or economic consequencess or consequent impact on the ratings of an incumbent as the indicator of the popular view of a sitting president. the public was not over enchanted with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seemed to believe george bush would be
and explained monica to say, because i could. that's too easy. what will we do with franklin roosevelt. he was a good president and had an affair with lucy mercer and others. john kennedy, i happen to think he was a good president and history may agree, who knows. we can't count them. wayne hayes, ruger mills, gary hart and bill clinton. do we say well, if they do that, we have to dispense with them. they can't be in the public eye. chris: you be the judge. you're the president of the united states for 10 minutes and i bring to you the petraeus case. it hasn't gotten out yet but will get out and you know it will because there are people out there, an f.b.i. agent, c.i.a. agent and they can drop anything anywhere. will you keep him on? >> he's the c.i.a. director and blackmail and all the possibilities are there. could they blackmail bill clinton? chris: put out the word he had an affair but i'm keeping him. >> everybody makes their own judgment as to whether this is more important than that. chris: right. >> if you're asking me about the people i named in history, i think what they did for

is chief military advisor to franklin roosevelt said, how could we send all these weapons to england if they're going to surrender to the british in a matter of weeks? and we end up fighting the germans? we will be charging into the face of our own weapons. but even though the operation of course when it happened around the world. and everyone knew about it. and roosevelt and marshall were very, very effected by this. they thought if the british government can do this, they are serious. they are not going to negotiate with the germans. they're going to stay in this for as long as they possibly can, and it opened up the pathway for armaments to go to britain, which were very much needed and very much appreciated. >> brooke stoddard, when the official date of the so called al of britain and? >> when were they? >> yeah. >> i think britain calls it july to the end of the timber, let's say. >> of 1940, which is essentially -- >> that's right. >> the segment of your book here. final question. let people read the other store in your but what happened to the admiral? >> you know, i don't kno

's far from isolated, pat, you know that. franklin roosevelt had a mistress. >> well, sure, but look what happened to -- john edwards was blown up. gary hart was blown up. bill clinton was almost blown out of the presidency. anybody that doesn't know this is going to be the consequence of what happens to you if you get involved in this, and you're running the cia is preposterous. >> eleanor. >> he's not the first powerful man to do something fallish when it comes to an extramarital affair, and he won't be the last. but he is, or was, head of the cia, and that could make him a potential target for blackmail. when you look into this, there's not much more here, i don't believe. there's no evidence of a breach in national security. the fbi apparently acted by the book. you don't tip off the white house when you're engaging in a potentially criminal investigation. the agent in florida who then worried that the investigation was being stalled and went to a republican congressman who went to eric cantor, he has an illustrious record. he helped bring down the millennium plot. you can't blame him

of tremendous books. this is the just the most recent. also traitor to his class about franklin roosevelt, biography of andrew jackson called andrew jackson. the age of gold about the gold rush in the 1840s. the first american, about benjamin franklin and tea are about theodore roosevelt. together these books comprise not haphazardly but purposefully a history of the united states for the last 200 or so years. a number of these books have been best sellers. traitor to his class and the first american were both finalists for the pulitzer prize and you can see h. w. brands on tv all the time if you go to the history channel or turn on the tv, there he is. this book is -- i will hold this up again so you can see and recognize it easily at the book signing tend, it is a tremendous biography of ulysses grant filled with stuffed i certainly never knew and was delighted to find out. it is very authoritatively and readable. before we get to grant himself i wanted to ask bill a broad question about biography. here at the book festival there are a number of biographers. i have read several of these
by franklin roosevelt. baltimore orioles center fielder adam jones was in new york friday, one of three orioles honored with a gold glove award. earlier in the day, he received another honor. that's jones on the left with the c.e.o. of rawlings parent company taking part in the closing bell ceremony at the new york stock exchange. teammates matt weiters and j.d. hardy joined jones for the gold glove awards dinner. >> good morning, well, just south of the city sunshine but clouds moving over the city and north of us and some of the up in pennsylvania producing light rain showers. when you get near the pennsylvania line and north of that, a few areas are down around freezing or below that so if there's precipitation, it might freeze on contact with the the pavement. 34 is the b.w.i. reading at this stage. the humidity's up, winds are calm and barometer is high at 30.32. here's the satellite picture showing clouds and showers to the north, just a brief episode that will affect us this morning. we might get a sprinkle or drizzle out of it briefly or light rain shower but the basic day will
washington -- movie theater -- well. franklin delano roosevelt, richard nixon or ronald reagan? >> roosevelt? >> they cheated but we'll give it to them. >> yeah, franklin roosevelt. >> needed the pool for therapy for his legs, built the pool in 1933, 1942, a movie theater a good who knew for you, do you know who the first person was who watched an x-rated movie in the white house? >> no. i think i know but -- >> jimmy carter, watched "midnight cowboy." x-rated means something different now than then. >> funny. >> back across to kath. >> this lady from california. all righty. which actor played president bartlett in the popular tv series "the west wing," john list lithgow, rob lowe, martin sheen or jeff daniels? >> martin sheen. >> more cheating than in the election. >> people know. what is going on? >> originally, the president, aaron sorkin when he wrote "the west wing" didn't think the president would be featured at all and martin sheen cast in four episodes, he was so great, they kept bringing him back. >> he was great in that role. i think time for another one. >> one more. all right, tr
president eisenhower, when he would general-- remember franklin roosevelt and lucy mercer, how important that relationship was to him in the second world war. i think we have to be understanding that as the saying goes, the best of men are still men at their best. >> schieffer: peggy, you are one of them? >> yeah, to tell you the truth, i think this story is a little mysterious. i don't really understand why the general, having made a painful mistake, painful for himself and his family, why he had to leave, and why he was, according to the press, sales ared to leave. and i understand what he would feel is the breach of honor, but this is a truly great and constructive american career. and i'm just not sure why he had to leave. the second thing, i don't think anybody quite understands how the f.b.i. could have been going through his e-mail, and the f.b.i. leaders didn't know, justice didn't know. how did this begin? how did it go forward? when was the white house told? you just have to wonder what the heck is this? >> schieffer: we're going to talk more about this on page 2. i'll be right
. and even george marshall, who was the chief military adviser to franklin roosevelt, said how could we send all these weapons to england if they're going to surrender to the british in a matter of weeks, and we end up fighting the germans? we'll be charging into the face of our own weapons. but even though the operation was secret, it became headlines, of course, when it happened around the world. and everyone knew about it. and roosevelt and marshall were very, very affected by this. they thought if the british government can do this, they're serious. they are, they're not going to negotiate with the germans. they're going to stay in this for as long as they possibly can. and it opened up the pathway for armaments to go to britain which were very much needed and very much appreciated. >> host: brooke stoddard, when the official dates of the so-called battle for britain, battle of britain? >> guest: when were they? >> host: yeah. >> guest: i think britain calls it july to the end of september, let's say. >> host: of 1940? >> guest: of 1940. >> host: which is, essentially -- >> guest: yes, t
so, he echoed the language of the new deal as franklin delano roosevelt once said "in our personal ambitions we're individualalists but in seeking political progress as a nation we all go up or else all go down as one people." its remains to be seen whetr the country can heal the wounds in the shadow of the fiscal cliff. we watch as president obama seeks to make good on his promises in a second term. joining me from chicago is bill daley. he served as white house chief of staff from january 2011 to january 2012. in february he was appointed as a co-chair of the president's reelection campaign. so my question first is about the politics of this election. how do you read the results? >> well, i think the results are as -- to be honest with you, if you look at the polls and the public speculation i ended up where everybody thought. the states that were going to be close were close and the president won all of them and we're still waiting to hear back on florida, obviously. but the message that was sent here was a couple of things. the president's message of this has been a tough four
, franklin roosevelt and abraham lincoln. i am pleased to have her here on this program. welcome. >> thank you! >> rose: good to see you. >> it's good to be here. >> rose: so we reelected a president last night. you have written about presidents. what should we think about? what's the context for looking at the second term? >> i think the most important thing is there will be some sort of a mandate, not the country at large in general but for obamacare to continue and the dodd-frank probably not to be undone. but other than that, what we have to look for is him to build a mandate with a relationship with the people. and the most important thing is to learn from what he acknowledges he didn't do as well in his first term. that's when a president can make a second term work. >> rose: i want to show you this clip from a conversation the president had with me some six or eight months ago. here it is. we have a friend named doris kearns goodwin. i asked her what would lincoln do. in many conversations we have had, she has said before ma that what lincoln says and what she has learned is that th
chet hutley was interrupted by his colleague, bill ryan. >> franklin delano roosevelt -- >> excuse me, here is a news flash. two priests who are with president kennedy say he is dead of bullet wounds. there is no further confirmation but this is what we have on a flash basis from "associated press." two priests in dallas who were with president kennedy say he is dead of bullet wounds. there is no further confirmation. this is the only word we have indicating the president may, in fact, have lost his life. >> a look back in time there. >>> all day long you can stay on top of the very latest developments in those stories and others as they break on msnbc. and tonight be sure to watch brian williams with "nbc nightly news." >>> and, finally, here's a look at what's coming up later this morning on the "today" show. matt, savannah, al, they all preview the holiday festivities -- >> that's al. >> is that, right there? no. they're going to be showing us what's happening down at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. >>> also, celebrity chefs northa stewart and giada talk turkey with last-minute
and franklin roosevelt. obama doubts or comes close to doubting the inevidentability of progress, partly because he doubts there's fixed goalposts or standards by which to measure progress. the profit leader, as it were, the great hero of so much liberal political writing, wilson, fdr, jfk, but didn't work out as they had hoped, lbj, and others, the prophet leader is therefore, on his own, forced to tell stories about the future he cannot know or discern, but can, if his will to power is sufficiently strong, will into existence. if history, in other words, has no happy ending in store, if there's no guaranteed values of its own, then the leader may have no choice but to impose his values on the chaos of time. thus, liberalism has not only a fiscal crisis confronting it, but also, i say, a philosophical cry -- crisis. liberals, especially in the academy, post modernists like richard among others, tend to no longer believe liberalism true or right in any objective sense. obama is not a post modernist i'm happy to report, but the confusion about truth, very visible in his discussion of slav
over five points, as did the market under william mckinley. we like to be thorough. and franklin roosevelt a day after. president -- you know, it's striking the idea that what you're saying here is president obama, the market will sell-off. you scratch your head and say, why in the world we reelecting the fellow? >> well, independent voters, maybe people a looking at the future for their children. sitting here saying, we can't continue the spending. this has a cost, and it's pay me now or pay me later. i think for the obama administration they let the spending get away from themselves. people look at the stimulus and say, what did i get other than more debt, bigger, higher interest expense. unfortunately i think the obama administration let the economic policy get away from themselves. lou: well, as you know, recent studies show that everyone under the age of 18 in this country are on the hook for $218,000 of our debt. thank you for being with us. we appreciate. >> thank you. lou: up next, nearly two-year election cycle now boiling down to just a handful of counties and a handful
get $125 for our work. i voted for franklin roosevelt in his second term. i was already 21 at the time. i worked for ted kennedy and i worked for jfk before -- when he was a senator. >> reporter: her fantastic work has not gone unnoticed she was honored by state for 50 years of says, a while ago now she is getting into her sixth decade of -- seventh decade, 60 plus years on her wall in her garage where she has the polling place all of the name tags she has worn over the years and most of them say, may i help you? that's what she is all about, helping others. she will be doing it again at the age of 90 six, today the oldest poll worker at least in the city and county of san francisco, terry mcsweeney, abc7 news. >> a lot of respect for her. >>> a lot more ahead. stay with abc7 news all day for live team coverage of nationwide and local election results. we'll have a special early edition of abc7 news at 3:00, live reports from the obama and romney headquarters. world news will be on at 3:30. followed by live election coverage at 4:00. local results start coming in at 8:00. followed by a
but at the end of the day was victorious, diane and george. >> franklin roosevelt, you talk about the communities electric for president obama. one of them right near here in harlem. abc's deborah roberts is there, the same place she was four years ago, another celebration, deborah. >> hey, george, i got to tell you this doesn't even seem like the same room i stepped into five hours ago. when we arrived here people were somber. they were sick to their stomach with worry thinking it would be a very long night. one woman -- with the president feeling disappointed and -- tonight she said it's all a given. they are here for the president tonight, george. there's one gentleman said to me it's almost like a couple renewing their wedding vows. maybe they're not as giddy as they were on their honeymoon but at the end of the day they can still love each other. i think you see this love is still here for the president. these people are beside themselves. right? >> i love it. loving it. four more years. >> somber, you said. not with what we're seeing. we can barely hear you and let's head out to josh elliot
, despite all the negativity. he's the first democratic president since franklin roosevelt to be re-elected with more than 50% of the vote. did they report that on fox news today? probably not. the last time a president was re-elected, this is how he defined his victory. >> when you win, this is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view. that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now i intend to spend it. >> did you see president obama talking about that? maybe that's his problem, i don't know. president obama has political capital on his side right now. he told america this is how he plans to use it. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties, to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. we've got more work to do. >> a little bit different, isn't it? this country voted to end gridlock. voters did so with a near total rejection of the republican
franklin roosevelt is endlessly talking about. can we have a conservation corps now? is that doable? there's a lot of things -- he's looking at history, you know, to may be a bit of a guide here in the second term. >> now, some of the key items on the president's agenda, deficit reduction action tax reform, immigration, climate change, alternative energy. do you have any sense of where you think he may go? >> climb never even got brought up in the presidential debates, but it means a great to president obama. i think we might be seeing john kerry become the secretary of state. kerry has spent his senate career pushing the climate issue, in the sense of a global cooperation on climate. it's something that when you're trying to win swing voters that didn't play well, but with hurricane sandy and new jersey still hurt like it is now, i think the second term will deal with it in a way they didn't in the first. >> thank you, douglas brinkley. thank you for your time. >>> thank you. >>> the election is over, and somebody romney staffers are saying has me very hopeful for the future. that's next.
'd addressed this to general eisenhower, general patten, franklin roosevelt before that, to me if that's all it was was this one matter and it was known, to me, no, he should not have been forced out. i think we're being to sanctimonious who we allow to serve and not serve, and get the best person in there. no harm, no foul. if it's a matter within the family let them resolve it, i don't think na general petraeus or others should be forced out because of issues like this, not unless you can show a compromise of national security. >> jamie: right, and the question still exists if that was the reason why he was, as you put it, pushed out. i know you'll search for answers on your committee. another question close to your heart. live out on long island, you represent a number of constituents in your district, in exactly the same position as you. i think it's so interesting to see someone who is a leader, and a congressman, who people rely on, who then becomes a constituent in the sense that you lost your power until very recently. what is going on with the long island power authority or lipa? he
franklin roosevelt ever heard about her call for health care of the right, because even though he had endorse the the conference, he choose that time to go on vacation. fdr was on a cruise i guess we can't blame him. probably well deserved vacation, three years earlier he had refused to include medical coverage as part of the social security act because he at any time didn't want to antagonize the american medical message. he sent a message of support but the outbreak of world war ii forced president's attention elsewhere. five years later on january 11, 19 e, in the state of the union address he spoke to the american people about the war and especially about the kind of peace allies planned to establish after the defeat of fishism. he said the one objective can be summed up in one word, security. and that means not only physical security which provides safety from attacks by aggressors, it means also economic secureity and social security. the individual political rights upon which the united states had been built roosevelt argued were necessary but not sufficient to guarantee true f
